Workers’ Compensation Fraud Hurts All Policyholders
Virtually all of the employee workers’ compensation claims filed in Rhode Island are legitimate on-the-job injuries. Unfortunately, those few who cheat the system by committing fraud drive up costs for employers, consumers, and insurers.
Likewise, virtually all employers report all payroll to determine their premium. However, those few who intentionally understate payroll and misclassify employees are committing a crime and increasing the cost to all other employers. At Beacon Mutual, we have zero tolerance for fraud. We take workers’ compensation fraud seriously, and we are committed to being part of the solution.
